Turkish soldiers move towards the Syrian border as part of Operation Olive Branch
Turkey is sending the United States "conflicting signals" about its operation against Kurdish forces in northwestern Syria, raising concerns in Washington that the offensive could backfire and empower either the Islamic State terror group, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, or both.
As well as the artillery and air strikes, Turkish ground troops and Ankara-backed Syrian rebels have punched over the border several kilometres into Syrian territory, according to state media.
The German government is facing calls to halt arms exports to Turkey after reports emerged that German-made Leopard tanks were being used in an offensive against the Kurdish YPG.
"We don't see the YPG as now the majority element (of the SDF)", the official said.
Turkey launched an operation targeting Kurdish fighters in Afrin on Saturday, opening new front lines in the seven-year Syrian civil war, just as ISIS fighters in the country have been all but defeated.
A high-level US delegation on Tuesday discussed a number of issues, including Syria, with Turkish officials, according to a Turkish diplomatic source.
Nureddine Mehmud says Turkey fired on Qamishli and other towns along the Syrian-Turkish border on Tuesday, calling it a diversion from the main campaign by Turkey and allied Syrian militia forces to invade the Kurdish enclave of Afrin, along another part of the frontier.
But last week Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said U.S. troops would stay in Syria on an open-ended basis to prevent the advance of President Bashar al-Assad's forces and reduce Iranian influence in Syria.
Turkey has repeatedly raised concerns over Washington's support for the YPG militias, with the USA promising to halt arms supplies to the Kurds. Some 25,000 pro-Turkey fighters have joined the offensive, rebel commander Maj Yasser Abdul Rahim toldReuters.
